Ramsay Kitchen Nightmares

I've been watching Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares.  It's both a Reality Show, with all the watching-car-crash that implies, and a makeover show.

I think one reason I'm so fascinated is that the show makes me think about my own leadership skills.  What gets a restaurant back on track?  Focus: paring the menu down to fewer choices.  Quality: improving quality of food sources and preparation techniques.  Management: be willing to hold delegates accountable, in the case of the show, be willing to yell at them and cuss them out.  Control operating costs through conscious choices.  Work.  Get your head in the game.
